“The conversation, facilitated by Julie Steele, BUEI’s Director of Education, will focus on the issues these community collectives are seeking to address, their methods and who, generationally, is actively engaged in their cause. Discussions will also speak on the impact of their work in relation to Bermuda’s future.”

“At BUEI we believe that when you know better, you do better,” said Karla Lacey, BUEI CEO. “This 90-minute, family friendly event, is a great way to open an inter-generational discussion and foster honest and organic dialogue within our community for the betterment of all.”

The spokesperson said, “The Climate Cinema series showcases short and feature length environmental films selected to engage the community in the climate conversation in the lead-up to this year’s Youth Climate Summit. The films focus on action being undertaken by people of all ages in communities around the globe, in the areas of sustainability, climate justice and conservation. Each was selected to complement the discussions fostered during the Summit and to prepare young people, their families, and peers for the topics the Summit covers.

“In addition to the weekly feature film, a selection of five to ten short films are being shown in hour-long blocks focusing on the following topics: Water is Life, Sustainable Living, Mother Nature, and Climate Generation. The full calendar of films can be found on www.YCSBda.com/calendar.”
